Less than two weeks to go until The Byre makes its London debut at Kew Gardens for Handmade at Kew. Preparations are in full swing here so that we can arrive and set up with minimum and fuss and drama… well, it wouldn’t be one of my exhibitions if there wasn’t some drama along the way.
New work from The Byre’s favourite makers is starting to arrive, and yesterday I drove over to the edge of Dartmoor to visit ceramicist Pauline Lee at her beautiful garden studio. Pauline has made a stunning collection of new torsos especially for Kew and I’m very much looking forward to showing them. Two are pictured here, along with some of Pauline’s other work on display in her studio and in her garden – as all are pieces can be placed indoors or outdoors.
